I had heard of this course in past year visits but never played it. I was happy to see green fairways with decent lies and an interesting layout of challenging holes built around the lagoons of an active water ski training facility. The greens were a little patchy but that did not seem to affect the roll much and they were fairly quick. For $25 this was a real value. I will definitely play it again.

The round was slow but the course was in ok shape. The greens were in better shape than the last time I played. They rolled true and were at a good speed. The fairways and sand traps were also well groomed. A good course for the cost.

The course was surprisingly green. Layout was great. Par 3’s are challenging. Great fun. I would play the course again.

On the negative side, the pro shop is among the worst I have seen. There is no parking lot; angled parking on roadside only. Be careful when you go from #9 to #10. You have to cross a road with regular traffic with trucks roaring by.

They are trying but the conditions were pretty bad in places, I know it is winter in Florida, but... traps were in horrible shape, mostly muddy sand. Fairways had some grass on them, the greens were pretty good. If you are not looking for championship golf, this has a nice layout, (a few wonky holes). Looks like they are trying, building a new clubhouse (pre fab structure), but didn’t see anyone trying to fix the course. Good value for the money and friendly staff. Not fancy, just a good track to go around a course and hit balls. Probably would not golf again.

Couldn't believe how good the condition of this course was for the green fees we paid. Nice and quiet out in the countryside with no traffic noise. Very interesting layout around the lakes where some waterkiing takes place. Must admit it is the first time we have ever had to wait to tee off in order to let waterskiiers pass by! May be a bit out of the way, but the opportunity to play here is well worth the journey.

We golfed this course 4 years ago and gave up on it. Returned this year for old time sake and were pleasantly surprised. Much improvement, golf carts, fairways and greens were in much better shape and definitely improving. We will be back.
